Ford said it set a new sales record for sport-utility vehicles in September, led by the Ford Escape, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Aviator, and said September sales were up 10 percent over the same month last year.
Ford's Lincoln Aviator sales reach new record in Sept.
Sales of Ford Motor Co.'s Lincoln Aviator, built at its St. Louis Assembly plant, were the highest in September since the sport-utility vehicle was introduced, the company said Wednesday.
Ford sold 3,260 of the Aviator models in September, the most since the vehicle launched last October. However, sales of the Ford Explorer and the Mercury Mountaineer, also built at the plant, were both down. The company sold 36,696 Explorers, down 13.4 percent from the same month last year, and sold 3,618 Mountaineers, down 22.1 percent from the same month last year, making the overall gain due to Escape & Expedition sales even more impressive.
Dearborn, Mich.-based Ford (NYSE: F) builds Explorers, Mercury Mountaineers and Lincoln Aviators at its assembly plant in Hazelwood, Mo. The plant employs 2,460 hourly employees and 180 salaried employees, and is the 42nd largest employer in the St. Louis area.
